I visited with a large group of photographers. It was a great place to get some nice photos. I especially liked the back drop of the mountain in the background. Con: I never located the bathroom but I am sure there was one there somewhere!

On Sundays they host a wonderful Farmer's Market, but The Farm (as locals call it) is a great place for families any time. No entrance fee, live animals, an inexpensive wagon ride and just a great place.

After almost four years in Utah, I can't believe I had never been to Wheeler Farm. Finally went last Sunday to check out the farmer's market. So glad I did as this is a gem of a location and a terrific place to hold a farmer's market. The property is large and park-like. So even during the farmer's market, which... More

I have been going here since I was a little kid and now I take my own kids. It is a fun place to check out the animals what a farm looks like or could be like if you haven't been to a farm. There are many things to do that are seasonal as well.

This is a beautiful old family farm nestled in the base of the Wasach Mountains of the Salt Lake Basin. It was early Spring when we went so there was not much vegetation to observe but I am sure it is beautiful in the summer months. There were lots of farm animals, fine for entertaining children but I would have... More

My husband and son planned a day of skiing at Alta which is absolutely magnificent to look at for 5 minutes, but with a toddler in tow waiting around all day was not an appealing option. I plugged the nearest Wendys into my nav system and headed to nearby Sandy to search out some food and distraction. We discovered Blac... More

I'm mostly reviewing this for the Farmer's Market held here at the farm on Sundays through the summer. The farm is a nice big place and the parking, even when always busy, seems to be plentiful. The mature trees of this historic place make this an ideal place for gatherings, family outings and on summer Sundays, shop for healthy real... More

Amazing place! My kids loved the farm. It's an authentic farm with gardens, a small orchard, a duck pond, and animals. We saw chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, horses, and cows. The highlight of our trip was milking a cow! We were tickled to make a smashed penny for our souvenir. Bring lots of water.

We were there in July so only stayed about 45 minutes due to the heat but I'd love to go in the fall. There are ducks to feed for 50 cents, horses, and other animals. There is a barn with antique tractors and equipment. We loved the little store where we bought candy. There is a facility to have a... More

Wheeler Farm is the site of a Farmer's Market every Sunday during the summer. It's not as big as the one downtown, but I like it better because it's less crowded and you can buy all the same fruits, vegies, jam, and other items here. Also, for $5 you can get a huge breakfast of eggs, bacon or sausage, pancakes,... More
